Today, Thursday, a relatively early start

GS: 24 kg x 2, 20 kg x 3 - all w/ long pauses at the bottom, all trying to figure out how to grip, comparing left and right hands

SW: 20 kg, lf, x 10's on the :60.  11 sets total to get in an extra set w/ left hand.  There seems to be a necessary, albeit very slight, shift of the hips away from the bearing arm side.  I sometimes resist pushing into my right hip, but doing that makes my left side swings much better.  A work in progress, not sure of all my observation's validity, but the final set of swing on the left side, with a start by making sure I was "into" my right hip, felt altogether more solid and on another level in terms of connectedness and power.

GU: 8 kg, lf, alternating singles, 2 each side - excellent.  Already getting tired and won't do more today, but very happy with this.

Plan for about an hour from now:



16 kg, lf, x 1, 1, 2, 2
rest briefly
18 kg, lf, x 1, 1, 2, 2
rest a little longer
20 kg, lf, x 1, 1, 3, 3 - first triple w/ 20 kg, nice.  Total 10 presses each side today, light day but immediately after medium day yesterday.  Was 28 presses on Monday and 18 yesterday

PU: on bar, bw + 20 kg on left foot, rest,repeat right foot.  Paused a few seconds at top, Adam's apple touching bar at bottom - higher would have been nice.  Slow negative.


225 x 6 double over, paused tng
255 x 5 r/u, paused tng - right shoulder felt misaligned afterwards
305 x 3 r/u, paused tng - repeat same grip, right shoulder fine this time
305 x 3 l/u, paused tng - good
